Google calendar.

Post by Roderunner »

Hi Folks, I use Google calendar in Firefox but it's the same in IE11.
As you see in my image, All Day events are shown differently from an event with a start time in 'month view' but are the same in 'agenda' view.

Can any of these be changed. More on this later.

I guess this was done to visually distinguish all-day events from 'finite' events in Month view. In Agenda view that isn't necessary since all-day events explicitly mention 'All day' there.
I don't see a way to change this behavior.

Hans

Hi Hans,
this is how I changed the background. If I tick the 'Light Text' box, The month view displays both as in Friday 21 in my image above.
I just tried as above, it only changes the text not the background.

Same for me. Again, I don't know a way to change this behavior in Month view.

Hi Hans,
The reason I'm now using Google calendar is because MS knackered WL Mail, my ex favourite program.
In GC if I set an all day event, I get an email reminder preset to be delivered on the day it's due @ 0600hrs E.G. Gow 1000hrs means I need to go to the bowling club @ the Gow @ 1000hrs. If I set the reminders start/end time it is harder to set, to get an email reminder when I want it.

I understand, but I fear that you'll have to live with the way Google Calendar handles colors, unless someone else has a better suggestion...

Hans

Hi again Hans.
I have replaced all of the all day events I wanted to be set with a start time. I click on the first date in month view type 2PM Milk copy the text click Enter and it is added. I then go to next date click & paste, click Enter.

I have now changed to a daily agenda for my reminders, so now they look like this.
